Co-host and Author
Daniel Goleman is an internationally known psychologist who lectures frequently to professional groups, business audiences, and on college campuses. As a science journalist Goleman reported on the brain and behavioral sciences for The New York Times for many years. His 1995 book, Emotional Intelligence was on The New York Times bestseller list for a year-and-a-half, with more than 5,000,000 copies in print worldwide in 40 languages, and has been a best seller in many countries. Apart from his books on emotional intelligence, Goleman has written books on topics including self-deception, creativity, transparency, meditation, social and emotional learning, ecoliteracy and the ecological crisis.
Fascinated with the importance of stories, Hanuman began his career recording audio for cultural preservation. Since founding More Than Sound, LLC (dba Key Step Media) in 2005, one story has risen to the top in terms of importance: ‘WE CAN AND MUST DEVELOP EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE.’ This story is one of how we as individuals and communities cultivate more self-awareness and empathy — how we develop and leverage the competencies of emotional intelligence in order to make more intentional and thoughtful decisions and become more effective leaders in every area of our lives.
Over the years, Vipassana meditation practice has been an important guide for Hanuman’s development. He sat his first mindfulness retreat at the Insight Meditation Society in Barre, Massachusetts in 1989. And in 2004, he developed and participated in The Wisdom Preservation Project, recording interviews with Buddhist masters in Myanmar.
A graduate of the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies, Hanuman received his M.A. in Media Arts from Emerson College. He lives, works, records, and tells the story of emotional intelligence from his little, yellow house in Western Massachusetts, which he shares with his wife and two young kids.
